but through it all you're always there, watching and guiding us,

You're always in our hearts.

In Loving Memory Of

Joseph Gambino

Who Passed Away One Year Ago,

August 29, 1994

Sadly missed, but never forgotten.

Loving wife, Frances In Loving Memory Of Mother, Grand mother and

Great Grand mother Rose Grcevich On her second anniversary in Heaven-

August 29, 1995 Peaceful be thy rest, Dear Mother, It is sweet to breath

thy name; As in life we loved you dearly, So in death we do the same.

Lovingly Your Family In Loving Memory Of My Beloved Son Steve Jesse On His

12th Year In Heaven August 29, 1995 Son, you always will remain with me,

for love itself lives on. And cherished memories never fade because a loved

one's gone. Those we love can never be More than a thought apart, For as

long as there is memory You live forever in my heart. Loving & missing

you always, Mom In Loving Memory Of My Godfather Joseph F. Gambino

Who was called to Eternal Rest on August 29, 1994 Forgetting you never

Loving you always Alexi In Loving Memory Of My Son Marty Jelovcic On

His First Anniversary In Heaven, August 29, 1995 Your resting place I

visit and put flowers there with care, But no one knows the heartache When I

turn and leave you there. They say time heals all sorrow And helps us to

forget, But time so far has only proved How much I miss you yet. I think of

you in silence And often speak your name, All I have are memories And your

picture in a frame. My heart still aches with sadness And silent tears still

flow, For what it meant to lose you No one will ever know. Forever in

my heart, Until we meet again... Mom In Loving Memory Of Our Brother Marty

Jelovcic On His First Anniversary In Heaven, August 29, 1995 God

saw you getting tired And a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around

you And whispered, "Come with me." With tearful eyes, we watched you

suffer, And saw you fade away; Although we loved you dearly, We could not

make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest;

God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. It's lonesome

here without you, We miss you more each day; Life doesn't seem the same,

Since you have gone away. When days are sad and lonely, And everything goes

wrong; We seem to hear you whisper, "Cheer up and carry on." Each time we

see your picture, You seem to smile and say; "Don't cry, I'm in God's

keeping. We'll meet again some day." Love always, Sisters, Nadine (Mark)

& Margie In Loving Memory Of Our Brother Marty "Sonny" Jelovcic On His

First Anniversary In Heaven, August 28, 1995 The day you went into the

emergency room, all our lives changed forever. The morning you coded, we knew

the future was in God's hands. We stood vigilant next to you in ICU,

singing all your favorite oldies, praying that you would sing with us again

soon. But, on Monday, when you took your last breath while we held you

so tight begging you to wake up, God came by and took you to Heaven to be

with Dad. A thousand wishes can't bring you back Neither will a million

tears; Our family chain is broken And nothing can ever be the same. We

miss you so much, Love, Na & Mugs In Loving Memory Of Our Daughter

Katherine Juanita Villegas On Her 2nd Day in Heaven Please don't

tell them you never got to know me, It is I whose kicks you always remember, I

who gave you heartburn that a dragon would envy, I who couldn't seem to tell

time and got your days and nights mixed up, It is I who acknowledged your

cravings for peaches and ice cream by knocking the cold bowl off your belly, I

who went shopping and helped you pick out the perfect teddy bear for me, I who

liked to be cradled in your belly and rocked off to dreamy slumbery by fire, It

is I who never had a doubt about your love, It is I who was able to put a

lifetime of joy into a instant. Loving you always, Mother, Father, Brother,

Sister, Grandmothers, Aunts and Uncles. In Loving Memory Of Our Father and

Grandfather Otto F. Braun Who passed away August 28, 1963 He had a

nature you could not help loving and a heart that was purer than gold. And to

those who knew him and loved him, his memory will never grow cold. Edith and
